Winning a major CCTV contract from one of Britain’s biggest bus operators in the teeth of significant competition is quite a coup for any business. However this is what CCTV specialist SURE24 achieved in October 2018, John Lewis reports

Last year SURE24, the Nottingham-based tech company inked a deal with Go-Ahead, one of the UK’s leading public transport providers, to provide on-board CCTV support services for all 5,000 of its UK buses.

Since Go-Ahead was founded in the 1980s, it has transformed itself from a small bus operator in the North East of England into an organisation which provides more than a billion journeys each year with its UK bus and rail services.

Responsible for around 30% of all train passenger journeys in the UK, Go-Ahead also currently operates four rail contracts in Germany. It is the largest operator of bus services in London, running around a quarter of the capital’s buses.

Outside of London, its regional bus services account for around 11% of the UK market.
